The War on Wolves continues in Idaho. Wolf hunting is legal in Idaho.

September 1, 2009 First wolf killed as Idaho opens hunting season:

“The human population successfully eradicated wolves from this region in the early part of the 20th century, and it would be a true shame after all the efforts that went into recovery if that happened again,” said Jenny Harbine, an attorney for Earthjustice, a plaintiff in the case. Source


Trophy hunts on wolves are about power not conservation. Wolves of Douglas County Wisconsin is against trophy hunting. 

Compassion for animals should be fundamental for conservation because poor conservation outcomes are often consistent with the mistreatment of animals. ~Marc Bekoff, Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Colorado, Boulder, USA and International Patron of the Centre

  1. Baiting wolves to kill them is totally unethical and unsportsman-like. There is no need for this. This would be a cruel and unusual practice to compensate for poor hunting skills.

  2. Wolves are essential to a healthy ecosystem. Without them a lot of things can happen. I am against trapping, shooting, and baiting them. Why do people so hate wolves? Those who hate are hating a cousin to our domesticated dogs. Everyone should try to see them as dogs and not something that comes from a fairy tale.
